Alex Jannini is a fourth-year PhD student at Syracuse University in the Biomedical and Chemical Engineering Department. His current research consists of developing tough and elastic double network hydrogels that have adhesive, self-healing, and biomimetic properties. His Master's research focused on implementing pharmaceutical engineering concepts into lab-based, introductory engineering courses. He has had experience in the classroom as an adjunct professor at Rowan University. In this role, he helped develop a series of experiments for a freshman engineering course that explored introductory engineering concepts through chocolate manufacturing, and another series of experiments involving dissolvable thin films for a similar course. Alex is also the president of the Syracuse University Chapter of ASEE, and has been working diligently with his executive board to provide seminars and workshops for their fellow graduate students. Alex's plans upon graduation involve becoming a professor or lecturer, specifically at a primarily undergraduate institution.
Alex received his B.S. in Environmental Science from Iowa State University in 2014. He joined the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Syracuse University in June 2014 where he is currently a PhD student. His research interests include understanding the fate and transport of pollutants in urban environments as well as the role of green roofs and other green infrastructure in affecting air and stormwater quality. He is also on the leadership board of the student chapter of the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) at SU, serving as the treasurer.
Katy is a PhD Candidate in the Bioengineering program at Syracuse University.
